2006 Rossignol-Trapet, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Cherbaudes
Here the nose is fresh and clean – a mineral dimension too. In the mouth this is sleek and also rather mineral. It’s a direct wine, but one of fine energy and dimension with very understated tannin and super balance. Very athletic in shape…
Rebuy – Yes

1999 Nicolas Potel, Nuits St.Georges
Quite deep coloured. A gorgeous nose of deeply pretty and fruit – you keep wanting to take another sniff. Much rounder and more textured in the mouth versus the Cherbaudes – balanced and with a faint undertow of tannin. Aromatically gorgeous, the flavours still seemingly quite young – but very approachable and enjoyable…
Rebuy – Yes
